In November

History: Since 2014, the restaurant received exclusively good ratings before the Nov. 2 needs improvement rating.

What the inspector saw: The inspector observed three priority violations on Nov. 2, earning the restaurant a needs improvement rating. Those violations were inadequate cooling of food, a walk-in refrigerator failing to keep foods at established temperatures and insufficient consumer advisories for undercooked foods.

Follow-up: The walk-in refrigerator issue had not been resolved by the Nov. 4 follow-up, but was by Nov. 8, when the restaurant passed the inspection.

Response: The Star was unable to contact a manager at either of two numbers listed for the restaurant, and a Facebook message also received no response.
